    Shadow Weaver! I've got her...

    ...and she ROCKS!





    Thanks a bunch to TG for sending her as a surprise! A little while back, I let Scott borrow my UK MOTU comics. I got them back in the mail today along with Shadow Weaver. Guys, she is AWESOME! Her coloring is similar to Orko's (maybe even a hair darker), so she is darker than she was at SDCC and looks more like she did in the cartoon.

    I may keep this one MOC since I have the sub SW coming and plan to open that one.


    So cool!

    Would you have ever thought Shadow Weaver would be included?

    I remember two years ago when there were countless discussions on the org about SW. I recall Scott coming on and repeating that we didn't need to get our hopes up. Then, he made it happen!

    I mean, what a great time it is to be a collector!

    That's awesome.

    I have to say, it's classy of him to send figures to people who lend Mattel their materials (Lady Angora received a free Swift Wind).

    I'm so glad you received this figure!

    She looks great! OPEN HER!! OPEN HER!!! You know you want to do it!!

    Congratulations on getting Shadow Weaver 3 months early, Penny! Maybe you guys can do a review over RGD? If it goes over well, maybe you guys could start getting regular figures...

    Her bio already was revealed.

    Shadow Weaver-Evil Mistress of Dark Magic
    Real Name: Beatrix

    Born in the Etherian Kingdom of Mystacor, Beatrix was once known as Light Spinner and served as an apprentice to the great mage, Norwyn. When Hordak arrived on Etheria during his exile in Despondos, he promised her great power in return for information and help in overthrowing Bright Moon and the surrounding kingdoms. Her powers were greatly enhanced through a magical gem whose power also induced an irreversible change in her appearance and mental state. She betrayed Norwyn and her fellow magical student Castaspella, leading Horde Troopers to their hidden magic archives. In Horror Hall, Beatrix took the name Shadow Weaver, using her black magic to fight the Great Rebellion all the while secretly planning to overthrow Hordak and claim his power for her own!

    Yep it's fantastic! Many fans won't get to own her since she isn't available to buy Sorry just can't get excited (it's not sour grapes as I have one pre-ordered from BBTS) but there will be far too many huge fans left disapointed, which kinda kills the excitement (for me anyway) He might have made Penny's day (Congrats Penny! ) but Scott has ruined her release for so many other fans who are a big fan of the character. She just shouldn't have been the sub figure. Her release will always be bittersweet unfortunately.
    The 12 figures I still need: 12/Spinnerella, 11/Peekablue, 10/Squeeeze, 9/Lizard Man, 8/Gwildor, 7/Filmation Clawful, 6/Imp, 5/Mermista, 4/Dylamug, 3/Tung Lashor, 2/Filmation Hordak, 1/Queen Angella.

    Quick! Put her on Ebay and sell her for...



    BUY IT NOW!!!

    Seriously! Remember when someone bought a loose, incomplete Count Marzo a month in advance for $154 and some change? Imagine what they'd do for a sub exclusive MOC Shadow Weaver!

    She looks awesome. Congrats, Penny!

    What shade of green would you say her hands are? They look pretty pale...



    By the way, I just saw a Shadow Weaver pre-order sell for $143 on eBay the other day.
    Take part in Illumina Day! Let people know who she is and help get her in MOTUC.

    I would expect in the grand scheme of things the amount of people who wanted her and opted not to subscribe is in the small minority, and those that did not hopefully were able to get in at BBTS (I know I ordered 3 from them for friends who opted out). Its all anecdotal at best, I just know that out of my 20 POP friends, 17 subscribed and the other 3 went on the after market.

    Its what it is, it will be interesting to see how she does on the market after 6 months (after all the SHE IS SO RARE GIVE ME MONEY goes by), if she comes anywhere near the last two sub figures it won't be too bad to get extras.
